Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and take a break from all the chaos? It would be best if you had a quaint little town to vacation in. A place that is not crowded or highly urbanised. In a location with good weather, you are not sweating too much.

Timber Creek is a small isolated Australian town located on the banks of the Victoria River. Approximately 600km south of Darwin, and 285 Km West of Katherine, Timber Creek is well known for its Boab trees. The Victorian highway passes right through the town, making it well connected via road.

With a very low population and basic amenities, Timber Creek could be the perfect getaway from the traffic, noise, and pollution of the populated city life. You can go fishing and catch some sizable Barramundis. You can also visit Gregory National Park and get some time with nature.

The Gregory National Park is open all year round. You can go on four-wheel drives, explore the area, go fishing or even camp under the stars and wake up to the sounds of a variety of birds, you cannot spot in the busy cityscapes.

You can go on a solo trip to get some time for yourself or go with family. Children will love to get close to nature, observe the birds, the forest life, and all other things the city life cannot provide them. This trip can also give you a taste of rustic life, which can be an experience to cherish for many years to come.

Timber Creek is not very urbanised like many cities around Australia. The population is low; there is not much of a “nightlife” or malls and shops to while away your day in. It is a rest stop for those who are en route to Perth or Broome from Darwin.

Timber Creek also has a small airstrip to the west of the town for those who want to land their charter flights.
